The administrators are slipping...with BBC being allowed in here... I believe that's just asking for trouble as I KNOW that about 99.5% of it that's not in the public domain at this time...yet some put an old time radio tag on it just to pass it through... I was involved with one site where the BBC sued to get the material off their site...and I don't want this happening here...

I believe that I've been here since late 2002...early 2003 and this is one of the more reliable (and stable) sites for OTR...once some fixes are made for accuracy's sake... ;)

Hi,
These Mathew Slade episodes are AFRS (Armed Forces Radio), not BBC.

I know this series isn't BBC...but I was just getting the point across that some people were sneaking in BBC under the nose of the administrators...claiming it as OTR...

There wasnt any OTR here before Oct 2005, A remix of War of The worlds was all here then. You are right about the BBC shows. Dont mess with Auntie Beebe, She will get you. I know of many sites that found that out. They have way different laws that allow for copyrights for some large number of years after the last surviving writer dies. The audio can be PD while the Scripts are not and wont be any time soon. If a writer wrote a show in 1940 and died in 1941 the copyrights are in force until 2036.

I thought I joined here slightly after I left Yahoo in disgust in August 2002...but guess I was wrong on my start date...
